Pentecost – God’s Spirit fills us with love, shapes us in His image, and restores us to Communion with one other. Ask to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Pray for others in the Spirit. The gift of the Spirit grows to the degree that we give it away.
Ascension – Jesus returns to the spiritual realm where he came from. He is present to us through the Spirit that dwells in our hearts. May the eyes of your heart be enlightened so you can live your daily life from Jesus’ eternal perspective.

Easter, 5th Sunday – I got my first wild turkey thanks to Lee’s mentoring. The Holy Spirit mentors and guides us, gives us mentors, and calls us to mentor others. Let us allow the Holy Spirit to build us up in the faith so that we can build up others.
Easter, 4th Sunday – The Good Shepherd never forgets a sheep. Come hell or high water, blizzard or earthquake, the Good Shepherd will be there with you and for you. How would your life look different if you trusted this much in God’s love for you?
Easter, Blizzard Sunday – Eyewitnesses saw the risen Jesus and it changed their lives forever. Where have you seen the Risen Jesus? How has He changed your life? People will believe in the Resurrection when they see the transformation in us.
Divine Mercy – Jesus is like us in all the ways that make us miserable. It is precisely in our misery that God comes to meet us and offer mercy and feed us with True Love. Pray to experience once again for the first time the Miracle of the Eucharist.
Easter Sunday – The Resurrection of Jesus fulfills God’s promises from the past and it promises a glorious future. Belief in the Resurrection changes the way we see sacrifice, sufferings, and death. Do you believe in the Resurrection?
Good Friday – Jesus is God’s perfect gift to us, and man’s perfect offering to God. He invites us to receive His gift, and to join in this perfect gift. How do you respond?
Holy Thursday – God gives us beautiful moments like the Last Supper so we will trust His faithfulness in our Good Fridays. But we often lose heart and run away when things get dark. Can your faith survive Good Friday?
